A 25-year-old woman, who admitted forging her deceased mother-in-law's name on a Master Card to run up bills for merchandise, was placed on probation for five years Monday by County Judge Charles J. Hannigan.
Jennifer L. White, whose address was listed as 43 Pound St., and her husband, Michael A., 50, of Lockport-Olcott Road, were indicted Feb. 2 for multiple counts of forgery, criminal stolen property possession, and unlawful use of a credit card and other charges stemming from the fraudulent use of the late Catherine H. White's charge card at more than eight Lockport area businesses over a three-month period starting Dec. 17, 1995.
Jennifer White pleaded guilty July 15 to second-degree forgery and he pleaded guilty to first-degree scheme to defraud.
Michael White was sentenced to pay $8,600 in restitution and placed on probation Wednesday. Court sources said that Mrs. White will be responsible for paying back the money if he fails to do it.
